First ’Itch 18 month ago 2 Drs said there’s nothing there. Self-diagnose LS after much research. Itch varies in occurrence and intensity, mainly on the labia majore here can be severe itch just on the inside, labia shrinking in size and skin thinner, small nodules around some hair follicles, when these are bigger & inflamed the itch can be intense, I rarely scratch but on the odd occasion for a few seconds then the skin will peel away and it is raw, now there is a good few raised patches varying in size, perineum mild itch & a bit stingy & anus mild itch occasionally., Last week Dr’s with photos, examination, now waiting for appointment for biopsy. Epilepsy age 11, PCOS age 21, always anxiety to some degree, stressful life, Early Menopause age 40’s with all that comes with it & ear wax problems.
I was coping, just! Even with my back & thigh pain. Until it was confirmed I had Arthritis, DDD & spinal stenosis, severe on left, Central & Lateral 1,2,3,4 & 5 lower vertebrae diagnosed 18 month ago. Then I fell to bits, Dr’s hadn’t believed me for 5 years!!! They thought I needed to see a counsellor, I was Mad, Stressed and Scared! Then I got Tinnitus after my ears got totally blocked I thought I was going Nuts, then I had 2 virus’s one after the other (pain!). So there is a strong chance all this 18 month ago triggered LS.
I am now unsure what to eat, Trying to miss out sugar, wine, gluten, night shades, ( never really ate junk or packaged foods or much sugar anyway, was always reasonably healthy because of other health conditions) Now I’m losing weight was relatively slim, now I’m 8 stone not good!.
Can anyone give me a list of basic foods so I can cook meals with less fear, I am constantly googling & and it’s not good for my head! I would really appreciate, your help on this matter. Then another time I’ll concentrate on treatments, etc but first I must put on weight & when your scared to eat it’s really difficult.
Thanks, sorry It’s a lot to put in a first posting.
